Smoky Mountains National Park

Early in the morning, our road trip starts through the Smoky Mountains National Park. We'll make a stop at Dave Crockett's Birthplace State Park, where we will find out more about the hunter, politician, businessman and the legendary hero. We plan to spend the night in Boone.

Tail of the Dragon

Highlight of the day is the world-famous piece of the US129 in the Smoky Mountains - best known as the "Tail of the Dragon". With 318 curves in 11 miles, it is a must for everyone.

Chattanooga Choo Choo

Today we head towards the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel with its Tennessee Valley Railway Museum. If possible, we will spend the night in style in this unique hotel.

Jack Daniels Distillery

On today's program we will find the town of Lynchburg in Tennessee with its 5,200 residents. Pictures of the town show old men with weathered faces sitting in the sun, playing cards and waiting. Waiting for the whiskey to mature in the large casks in the warehouse behind them and then to be filled in bottles. Lynchburg has become world famous through the Jack Daniel's Distillery. In an extensive tour of the distillery, we will learn more about the national drink of the Southern States.

Elvis Presley, Memphis

We will stay in Tennessee and travel into the metropolis of the classic Southern States, to Memphis. The city greatly contributed to the development of the blues, soul and rock'n roll.

Elvis Presley Graceland

One of the most famous symbols in America is certainly Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis. We will take part in an unforgettable sightseeing tour that tells us about Elvis' life, his music and his love for cars. Even after 35 years it is sure for many that Elvis still is the King. Those who want to tape a record like Elvis himself will have the opportunity to do so at Sun Records in the Beal Street.

Grand Ole Opry, Nashville

Our photo tour takes us through blossoming country sides of the Southern States to the Cumberland River and to the capital of Tennessee, to Nashville.
